I am a New York college student interning in Manhattan and living in Brooklyn. I have no money. If I want something good I bake it myself.
Rainbow Cakes in a Jar!
The recipe’s from here, though I used Martha Stewart’s white cake recipe because I don’t like making things that aren’t from scratch. I found the recipe a bit stressful, but that was just because it involves seven eggs whites, and beating and folding egg whites is just nerve-wracking for me because I’m always afraid I’ll get some yolk in with the white and they won’t stiffen, or that I’ll somehow fold them in incorrectly and the air won’t be trapped in like it’s supposed to be. Also I was kind of in a rush when I was making these.
But anyway, they turned out beautiful and delicious. I was giving them as a gift so I didn’t get to eat much—just the part I cut off the top to put the frosting in. I wanted to keep one for myself, though.
